New mob called Mongoose that spawns in grasslands, forests, and desert's. They can have different sizes that range from as small as a baby fox or as big as an adult wolf. If you drop any egg or a turtle egg is nearby they will eat it. They will also eat berries from bushes but will only do so once or twice a day. They will attack any parrots or silverfish nearby and have the ability to jump 2 blocks high instead of the normal 1. They can also dig one block tall tunnels in dirt or sand and will dig towards the nearest ore but will stop once it digs 8 dirt/sand blocks or reaches a non dirt/sand block. If there is a mongoose digging a hole already in that chunk they will not dig until the next day. At night they will retreat to their holes or into a small corner of a cave with low light levels. Mongooses are also immune to any negative effects such as poisen or slowness. Mongooses are also fast but will only run when low on health or when running towards food. When attacked they will rush towards the player and showing their teeth will bite the player dealing 3-4 half hearts of damage. Once they reach half a heart they will run away to the nearest hole or dark cave. They have a 5% chance to drop 1 mongoose hide when killed that can be eaten and will make you immune to negative effects for 5 seconds. They will also drop 4 experience points. Their total health is 15 for babies and 17 for adults.
